For me, the most comfortable bike I never got a chance to ride was a brand new 1974 Moto Guzzi Eldorado with solo seat. I saw it sitting in a shop in Montreal back in 74. I had just purchased a new 73 BMW R75, the previous year that I loved at the time. But I went in and sat on that Guzzi and everything just fit. The seat fit my butt, and all the controls all seemed to be in just the right place. I was fairly new to riding at the time and my BMW was the biggest and heaviest I had ever ridden at the time. I thought that if I really wanted to do some major touring, I just might spring for the Guzzi. Unfortunately, due to having to pay of university bills, the money for the Guzzi never appeared. Even to this day, when ever I see one, I automatically start drooling.
